Hiking in the incredible Rocky Mountains of Colorado is a dream come true for many outdoor enthusiasts. As the winter snows begin to thaw, hikers are making plans for another terrific hiking season.
The Limelight Hotel is offering its guests who are often aspiring mountaineers and avid adventurers, an exciting new way to explore the local mountains with the new Aspen-Crested Butte Package. As Aspen’s newest hotel, this luxury property is a nostalgic piece of history in this hip mountain town, known for its array of outdoor adventures and fantastic dining options.
Aspen and Crested Butte are two unique, Colorado mountain towns, which by road is more than 100 miles apart. Enjoy a stunning 6-hour, 11 mile-hike through the mountains that connect the two towns.
Included in the the Aspen-Crested Butte Package are two nights at The Limelight Hotel in Aspen. The luxury Aspen, Colorado property will provide a private shuttle to the trailhead on the White River National Forest, in addition to an assortment of local and organic snacks for the journey.
For hikers to track their progress on the trail and, if necessary, send distress signals as cell phones do not work on any portion of the hike, the hotel will also provide a map for the 11 mile hike and a Spot Satellite GPS Messenger<http://www.findmespot.com/en/index.php>.
Once hikers reach Crested Butte, private transportation will greet them at the trailhead to whisk them to their accommodations at the newly remodeled Nordic Inn<http://nordicinncb.com/>.
After spending two nights in Crested Butte, hotel guests have their choice of options for returning back to Aspen:
